    Temperature relief ?

    moderator comment - Moved from here: I Pool water relief in an intex pool?

    I'm living out in the middle east and desperately trying to find something to cool my pool. I have a 18'x9' ultra frame and desperate to give this one a go. It gets up to 130deg in the day here so the water isn't far behind!

    Re: Temperature relief ?

    Hello cib! There are two common methods used to try and get some relief from the warm temperatures in the water:
    - Pool cover (reduce direct exposure to the sun)
    - Aeration/fountain that allows airwater to get cooled by air before returning back to the pool; remember with any aeration however, you may drive PH up slightly depending on the type and amount of aeration used,

    Hope this helps.

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    I think Pat has the right idea, you need to setup a fountain so that evaporation can cool the water. There are pictures of examples if you search the forum.
